I do like to find my eyes being led in a garden:

  1. Dreamy gardens, here!…..

  2. Leading the eye indeed, Sue. Very nice.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Me too Sue! Where are these? On my phone so can’t see tags etc. Watching Rafa xx

  4. Nice to have a big enough garden that you can create different sections into which to lead your eye, I’m afraid mine is a little too small for that. Love the sound of the Loire garden and that walkway.

      Ah, well, I no longer have a garden! And it wasn’t large enough for ‘rooms’! That Loire garden was nice, but alas we were there at the wrong time for the Agapanthus….

  5. The first photo illustrates perfectly the concept of the Borrowed Landscape. And the other pics aren’t half bad either!

      The ‘Borrowed Landscape’, Chris? Not a phrase I’m familiar with! Glad yiou enjoyed these images

      • That’s the style of gardening where the design and planting suggests the garden stretches out into the countryside — the fields, hills or whatever — which you thus somehow have borrowed for your own plot.

        It’s done by leading the eye down paths or gaps towards the skyline, ensuring that the boundary between your garden and outside is not made obvious with a wall or fencing but softened with similar colours, shades or plants.

        So I understand — I’m no gardener!

        And I’m no gardener…but I can see the gardener in the first image had it sussed!

  6. Ahh have you been to Devon recently Sue?
